Summary:
Guy de Chauliac in 1353 produced a treatise that summarized the best of what he found in ancient and the more recent surgical treatises to which he had access, and he indicated what he thought were the better methods, as recommended by the Masters or which he himself tested. His conservative, almost reluctant acceptance of manual surgical procedures, and his explicit details of treatments with diets and medications  Read more...

Abstract:

Guy de Chauliac in 1353 produced a treatise that summarized the best of what he found in ancient and the more recent surgical treatises to which he had access, and he indicated what he thought were the better methods, as recommended by the Masters or which he himself tested. His conservative, almost reluctant acceptance of manual surgical procedures, and his explicit details of treatments with diets and medications reflect his situation among the church-educated physicians who dominated Academic Medicine in his epoch. His position was secure in the Schools, and it explains why Guy's treatise was the surgical "bible" for two centuries, and was referred to with respect until the late 18th C.
